Generation Rate Constraint

Generation Rate Constraint(GRCs): The Load frequency Control with Generation Rate Constraint problem discussed so far does not consider the effect of the restrictions on the rate of change of power generation. In power systems having steam plants, power generation can change only at a specified maximum rate. The generation rate (from safety considerations of the […]

Automatic Voltage Control

Automatic Voltage Control: Automatic Voltage Control – Figure 8.20 gives the schematic diagram of an automatic voltage regulator of a generator. It basically consists of a main exciter which excites the alternator field to control the output voltage. The exciter field is automatically controlled through error e=Vref-VT suitably amplified through voltage and power amplifiers. It […]
